Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place a baking rack on top.
Cut a thin sliver out of one side of each jalapeno and scoop out the seeds and membranes.
In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and garlic powder.
Fill jalapenos with cream cheese mixture.
Cut sausage into 8 slices. Mold a piece of sausage around each jalapeno.
Wrap a piece of bacon around each one, securing with a toothpick.Place on prepared baking sheet.

Position them so the slit in the jalapeno is facing up. This will help prevent the cream cheese mixture from oozing out as they bake.
